Victory might sit at the heart of our history but Warrior is a far superior exhibit. Look up through the rigging and listen to the gulls and you would think you were getting ready to sail. Go below and the atmospher hits you,it is so...More

Be sure to tour this ship, which made way under sail and power. It was one of the first of its kind and an enlightening tour.

A larger version of the Victory, with an engine. Well worth a visit, most impressive and a beautiful ship to look at.

Loads to see and well presented. Interesting for adults and children alike. Stairs between decks quite steep though!

Compared to Mary Rose and Victory, there was no information or anyone to ask questions that we could see. We wandered around by ourselves and tried to work out what was what, but with no information boards, etc. it was a bit disappointing. The ship...More

Amazing renovation by the skilled people in Hartlepool to bring this vessel back from the dead. Painstaking detail, accurate reconstruction and authentic finishes. Massive in stature and size.

We purchased the full Portsmouth Dockyard ticket and is worth every penny, especially as it is valid for 12 months where you can return anytime. Warrior is an fine ship and like the Victory lovingly restored to the smallest detail to its former glory. It...More

Definitely worth a visit, much better than HMS victory! The ship is enormous with a small cafe on board as well, take the water bus from the submarine museum which will drop you right next to HMS Warrior.

Yes a very short walk from the ferry to the dockyard. One point worth mentioning, the Mary Rose Experience is separate from the Dockyard so you will need to pay both.
